Abinger Roughs and Netley Park

Abinger Roughs, above the village of Abinger Hammer, is an area of grassland and mixed woodland - some of the mighty oak trees are over 300 years old. The Roughs is home to many creatures and itís a perfect spot for a young explorer to start looking at nature. In the 1870s, Charles Darwin, the famous naturalist, actually walked on the Roughs while staying at Abinger Hall. Abinger Roughsí shady paths are fairly flat and clearly marked, so you canít get lost. Itís a lovely area for family picnics. Netley Park lies on the scarp slope of the North Downs within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Netley House and its grounds are not open to the public, but there are 211 acres of woodland to explore, with fine views over the Tillingbourne Valley.
